Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative
Domestic homicides account for 1 in 5 murders in Canada. The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative (CDHPI) is a knowledge hub for this information to help inform promising practices in homicide prevention. The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Initiative with Vulnerable Populations (CDHPIVP) is a five-year SSHRC partnership grant (2015-2020) that explores the unique needs of Indigenous, immigrant and refugee, rural, remote, and northern communities, and children exposed to domestic violence. PATHS is a partner organization of the CDHPIVP.
The Canadian Domestic Homicide Prevention Conference will be held October 18-19, 2017 in London, Ontario. See the Conference Program, Registration, Speakers, and sign up for email here.
